Ilic Likely to Sign After Worlds

Mile Ilic is going to benefit two ways from the departure of Zoran Planinic: it freed up a roster spot...and some money. Ilic is expected to sign a contract beginning at $800,000 a year, enough to make his buyout reasonable, money the Nets saved by waiving Planinic. Ilic is likely to sign after the World Championships end on September 3 in Tokyo. Still, the Nets will probably have to pay some luxury tax next season.
